The exhibition is part of an ongoing cultural and intellectual collaboration between RMIT and the Vietnamese Women’s Museum. It contributes importantly to the research project, ‘Digitizing Art and Culture in Hanoi: A Case Study on Matca Space for Photography and the Vietnamese Women’s Museum’ piloted by RMIT lecturers Emma Duester and Michal Teague. This exhibition - the first to bring the RMIT collection outside of the university’s campus – intends to raise public awareness of the significance, the quality and the richness of contemporary art approaches in Vietnam. “No Rain without Clouds” is part of the RMIT Festival for Creativity & Design. The exhibition is supported by a program of events, including a national art review competition and a panel discussion by a featured artist from the collection, arts and cultural professionals and academics. Please refer to the festival’s website and social media posts for information on these and other events.
